This is the best movie of all time and should be at no. 1 on the chart. It is something everyone has to watch before they die, or else they've simply missed out.

I feel ashamed for hating this movie so much before. It brilliantly unfolds like a great novel and has incredibly detailed characters and unforgettable scenes. A true movie gem.

Perhaps is the greatest movie ever made with two of the greatest actors ever: The late Marlon Brando and Al Pacino who steal the show and a great performance by Robert Duvall and overall, some of the greatest characters, amazing story and iconic soundtrack!

"And I hope that their first child be a masculine child."

That line always cracks me up. Luca Brasi rules.

The best movie ever made and pretty much tied with Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring for my favorite movie ever and I can't imagine the Godfather being topped :D

Virtually any scene in The Godfather can be considered the greatest scene in cinematic history. Completely iconic and engrossing. Legendary film.

Overrated. For sure, it's a outstading movie, but it's kinda of overrated if I'm being honest. Just like I'd give a crap about some gangster shit.

Yeah it's a cliche and obvious choice for my #1, but I can't help it. It's just a perfect film which is especially surprising since I normally hate films that are overly-long, joyless, and slow-paced.

I finally understand the love for this movie. And I LOVED the first 90 minutes as well as the last 20 minutes. There's complex characters, deep and engaging dialogue and powerful themes about corruption and power. In between that time it was very draggy, the structure was messy and it lost its flare. The acting and the filmmaking stayed consistently great, though!
